Good question, and one many of us face. You can move those records into eBird, if your intention is to make eBird your listing platform. The county-wide records will have no value as data for researchers, but they might have value to you. EBird allows users to enter records for a county, a state, or even an entire country. You don’t need to have number of individuals (just enter an “X”) or even a valid date (just choose something like 1/1/00). Then mark the records as historical. The records for Pima County, entered this way, will be added to your Pima County, Arizona, United States, and World lists.
Again, such records don’t aid researchers, but they can serve you for listing purposes.
